Multi-concept venues are all the rage these days.
Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones
One example is Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones (SRPS), a lifestyle, retail and dining space in Orchard Central. The 5000sqft space is made up of a coffee and tea room called Steamroom; a seasonal produce-inspired restaurant called The Pillar that’s helmed by executive chef Stephan Zoisl; and Stones, a retail outlet and space for art jamming sessions, workshops and masterclasses.
Edit, 31 Aug 2017: SRPS is temporarily closed and will reopen soon at a new location.

2. Monument Lifestyle Concept Store and Café
Over at Duxton Hill, Monument Lifestyle Concept Store and Café is a place where you can have Four Barrel coffee or Samovar tea from San Francisco, tuck into light bites, and segue into browsing exclusive American lifestyle brands for men, such as menswear label Alex Mill and surfwear brand Katin.

3. 12 Ann Siang
Then there’s 12 Ann Siang on Ann Siang Hill. Already known for The Screening Room on the third floor and their rooftop bar, the five-floor venue now includes Coriander Leaf Grill restaurant on the first floor, a private events space on the second floor called Coriander Leaf Studio, and a speakeasy bar called Catchfly in the basement.
At Coriander Leaf Grill restaurant, expect sizzling numbers like Cobia kingfish served with spicy green harissa and pickled onions ($24), and harissa chicken burger on toasted brioche ($20).

Meanwhile, Catchfly mixologist Liam Baer jazzes up classic cocktails with fresh herbs and spices. They currently only offer a few cocktails on the menu—try Honey Badger, a blend of rosemary infused bourbon, lemon, ginger, yellow chartreuse and honey ($22)—but stay tuned as they are planning to roll out more options in the coming weeks.
